A continuing question that plagues the Archiving community is the choice of file format to use for archiving electronic documents. It is complicated by many factors including: the wide spectrum of archiving situations and specialized requirements, continuing evolution of existing document file formats, the invention of new kinds of documents and electronic content which must be archived, and the difficulty of planning to have all the appropriate hardware, software and media available in the future to process these documents. In this paper we focus primarily on the choice among existing document file formats and discuss their current suitability for various anticipated tasks.
